Dermatitis

Is your skin irritated? Do you struggle with itchiness or dry skin? Our functional medicine practitioners and physical therapists at New You Health and Wellness may have the answers you’ve been searching for. 

Dermatitis is a broad term that refers to any type of skin irritation. It has numerous causes and manifestations, but the most common are itchy, dry skin and a rash. Alternatively, it may cause the skin to blister, ooze, crust, or flake off.

These symptoms can be difficult to deal with, or make you feel uncomfortable or self conscious in your own skin. To find long lasting relief and unlock a comprehensive solution that targets the root cause of your issue, contact our Wauwatosa, WI clinic today. 

The most common types of dermatitis 

Atopic dermatitis (eczema), seborrheic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis are the three most common types of this condition. 

Atopic dermatitis affects over 31 million Americans and is frequently linked to environmental triggers. It typically begins in childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood and can range in severity from mild to severe. Most people have flare-ups in which one or more acute symptoms become more severe and last for several days or even weeks.

An itchy rash caused by direct contact with a substance or an allergic reaction to it is referred to as contact dermatitis. Although the rash is not contagious, it can be extremely uncomfortable. 

Many substances, including cosmetics, fragrances, jewelry, and plants, can cause this reaction. The rash usually appears within a few days of being exposed.

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin disorder that primarily affects the scalp. It results in scaly patches, red skin, and persistent dandruff. Oily areas of the body, such as the face, sides of the nose, brows, ears, eyelids, and chest, can also be affected by seborrheic dermatitis.
